TTF Presents: Trails Through Time

The Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed has a long and fascinating history, and few know it better than Bob Thomas of the Philadelphia Parks Alliance. Bob’s tours not only reveal historical gems, but are steeped in a deep personal knowledge of the evolution of the City and its park system–which was created to protect drinking water quality decades ago. Follow along as Bob explores Tacony Creek Park and explains the value that green space brings to our ecosystems–and to our own quality of life.
